Mumbai is such a place where people are running around the clock to flourish in their respective careers. Hence, street food has always been a preferred choice of meal for many, who live alone in this buzzing city. If you ask them to pick their favourite breakfast item, almost half of the people will refer to Vada Pav, an Indian snack known for its mouth-watering flavour and easy-to-prepare recipe. Those, who have ever visited Mumbai, might have spotted a roadside vendor selling Vada Pav in every nook and corner of the coastal city. Not only in Maharashtra, the food item has now become quite popular in other states across the country.

From the Indian cricket team captain Rohit Sharma to superstar Ranbir Kapoor, several celebrities have time and again expressed their love for Vada Pav. Even Shah Rukh Khan, the Badshah of Bollywood, once revealed in an interview that he used to have Vada Pav regularly during his struggle days to satiate hunger. The Indian delicacy has now achieved global recognition, securing a place on the list of “Best Sandwiches in the World”.

Taste Atlas, a global travel guide recognised for its culinary expertise, has recently brought out a list of the “50 Best Sandwiches in the World”. After it came to light, Indian citizens could spot Vada Pav proudly occupying the 19th place with a rating of 4.3.

The Vietnamese sandwich Banh Mi and Turkish Tombik Doner jointly clinched the top spot with a 4.6 rating. Lebanese dish Shawarma, Montreal Smoked Meat and Lobster Rolls are the other notable items among the top ten. Sharing the list on Instagram, Taste Atlas asked its followers to pick their favourite sandwiches.

Speaking about Vada Pav, it is a combination of two items– a deep-fried vada made of flavourful mashed potatoes coated in a besan batter and a pav, which is a soft bread bun. According to Taste Atlas, the Indian snack was first introduced by a street vendor named Ashok Vaidya, who used to run a shop near the Dadar railway station in the 1960s and 1970s. He thought of this affordable dish considering the daily need of hungry workers.
